After a brief overview, the course provides in-depth, hands-on experience focused on teaching the data requirements, industry standards, and business processes for maintaining an inventory of assets from acquisition to disposal (decommissioning). In this training, while we will be using ARCHIBUS software, its principal can be applied to other commercial BIM-based Facility Management applications.
